Michael Palmer Massey Ferguson Tractor Country Artist

Vintage Massey-Ferguson Diesel Tractor & Michael Palmer

Imagine the shock and surprise of finding this gem of a tractor sitting on the side of the road.  Cindy Schafer, taking pictures of Michael Palmer,  Country / Bluegrass music artist who also goes by "3rd Gear" jumped out of the car and started snapping.

 Massey Ferguson dates back to 1847 by Hart Massey / Michael Palmer Country Artist

"That day it was hotter than hell, and we had been in the barns and around the midway at the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds  trying to find the perfect shots for Michael's website, when I passed a pile of junk on the side of the road, literally. Then I saw the tractor. I was like 'get out, now!"   He says, "Are you serious?" I was like "Hell yeah, the tractor is perfect!"

She explains the whole shoot took at the tractor's location took only five minutes, but enough to turn out some pretty good photos with her IPhone5.  She says, "Massey-Ferguson tractors never die, neither does good music so I thought it a good match.  Michael is a regional musician playing bars, fairs and festivals near Martinsburg, WV but also into Virginia and Maryland.  Something about the tractor just felt right."

Probably 1973 or Prior Vintage Tractor

They never did find out the year of the tractor, but it's definitely 1973 or prior. "As old as dirt like me," jokes Schafer.   Palmer lives in Martinsburg, WV with his wife and three kids and can be hired for local events, fairs, festivals, or parties. He plays a Yamaha 6 string.

When did you start collecting and why ? 

I started collecting My Little Ponies when I was 3. I learned from my mother and she is the collection queen! Even after moving all over the world, she still managed to collect loads of stuff. As she is the queen, I am the princess and love to hit the local flea markets on Sunday morning. It is the only time you will find me up early.

What your favorite vintage items are or what you collect?

I still collect My Little Ponies and have a room full of them. I also restore, transform and sculpt MLP. I collect other things too, like my 1960's dentist chair and medical exam light. I tend to like mid-century kitsch.

Anything currently in your shop with a great story?

Recently I did sell a brass chalice to the property manger for Kevin Bacon's "The Following". It has been exciting watching for it appear on the show!
